Chelsea will be hoping to continue their push for a second consecutive Barclays FA Women’s Super League title when they travel to Walton Hall Park to face Everton on Wednesday evening.
The Blues continue to lead second-placed club Manchester City by just two points while Emma Hayes’ side are still to travel to The Academy Stadium before the season comes to a close.
Chelsea’s latest opponents Everton come into the game in good form with Willie Kirk’s side having taken six points from their last three matches. The Blue Girls will be without first choice goalkeeper Sandy MacIver who is recovering from concussion while Ingrid Moe Wold remains sidelined. Manager Kirk has also indicated that Danielle Turner is not yet ready to start a game as a result of her ongoing calf problem.
Hayes’ Chelsea side arrive on Merseyside on the back of a 6-0 victory over Bristol City in Sunday’s FA Women’s Continental League Cup final. Norwegian defender Maren Mjelde sustained a knee injury in that match which has put an early end to her season. Forward Beth England was missing at the weekend after being concussed in her side’s UEFA Women’s Champions League round of 16 second leg tie against Atletico Madrid a week ago but could be available once again for the Everton game.
Everton’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Chelsea is scheduled to kick-off at 7pm on Wednesday evening and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
